What Beans are Lentils

Lentils are a type of bean, and like all beans, they are a great source of protein and fiber. They come in a variety of colors, including green, brown, and red, and they have a slightly nutty flavor.

Lentils are often used in soups and stews, but they can also be added to salads or simply cooked and served as a side dish. Because they cook quickly and don’t require pre-soaking, lentils are a convenient and healthy addition to any meal.
